Attraction Information

The Tower of London is one of England’s greatest medieval fortresses and offers a history lesson like no other! Throw yourself right back into the gory old days on tours, within exhibits and through the ages.

On a Beefeater’s guided tour, experience the interactive Armoury in Action exhibition and, if you dare, take a trip to the top floor and the original 18th-century executioner's block. Your little warriors will then be ready for battle! The Tower is under attack and they must join the royal guard beating back the terrible Red Earl and his advancing hordes. Will the ancient battlements hold? Find out in a live re-enactment.

Visit the Royal Beasts exhibit where you’ll learn all about the exotic animals which were held captive in the Tower for more than 600 years! And to finish with a bang, be dazzled by the 23,578 gems that make up the Crown Jewels in the Jewel House. Just don’t try and pinch any or you might find yourself up on the executioner’s block!

  • Hear historic tales on a guided tour
  • Costumed events take place every day
